*ROSE CORSAGE (Stamile,P.)TET 53-AA
[((Killer x Forever Red) x Ricochet) X Tetra Siloam Double Classic]
21” EMRe. Dor. fr. Ext. EMO. 5” x 2½” x 1½”.
3 way branching. 20 – 25 buds. 100% double.ROSE CORSAGE has
been named “one of the best plants for the new millenium” by FLOWER AND
GARDEN magazine. It like PUCCINI, was a clear introduction the first
time it bloomed. Of all the Tetra Siloam Double Classic kids, it
was one of the few with an excellent plant habit. Most of the TSDC
kids seemed to want to bloom in the top of the upright sword-like leaves
with crowded buds and branching. ROSE CORSAGE was different.
It bloomed above the leaves with good branching and a brilliant rose coloration.
A double red eyed seedling from (Killer x Forever Red x Ricochet (Raspberry
Candy x Tetra Janice Brown) proved to be the key for excellent branching.
RICOCHET provided the dormancy and excellent plant habit and KILLER and
FOREVER RED gave depth of color to SILOAM DOUBLE CLASSIC. The result
is ROSE CORSAGE, the blending of the very best. ROSE CORSAGE has
excellent substance with tight, neat and well composed ruffling on petals,
petaloids and sepals. The deep green throat can rarely be seen since
the flower has never bloomed single for me. A deep red eye punctuates
what is otherwise a pure rose flower. Add fragrance and you have
a perfect rose corsage. A beauty and fertile both ways……………….$100.00
